Deinos • 5" of pure resin evil

Deinos the new 5" resin toy created by Bard Hole Standal will be released on the 15th of July. This custom creations was printed on a rapid prototype printer and molded/casted at his home in Norway. There are five colorways so far: black, red, purple, orange and yellow. There will be 5 of each color, but there is a good chance that there will be even less because the process of making the toys is very time consuming. It is quite a complex figure to mold and cast, and it requires a lot of post-work.

The first batch of toys will be released and sold at his solo show called the "The Birth of Deinos" which will be in New York on the 14-17th of July at Ouchi Gallery. This will be the only chance to get a hold of a Deinos for a couple of months, so if people want one, they should go to the show!

The story of Deinos:
Aeons ago, from the light of the ever-glowing sphere came a dragon roaring and breathing fire. Those that saw this remarkable view were witnessing the rebirth of Deinos. A creature older than the the universe, an eternal spirit of good luck and happiness for those lucky enough to be in its presence. With only one day to spend before returning to the aether, he spent his time wisely and decided to make sure he was remembered until his next rebirth in 1000 years. Deinos possessed the body of Bard for 24 hours and made him create a line of resin art toys in his image. The owners of these toys would gain life of complete happiness and good luck, as well a a rocking toy for their collection.
